Lecture @ Program 3 Munich Contemporary Curatorial Practices

Lecture Series 2010: Contemporary Curatorial Practices
March 24, 2010 - 07:00 PM
Internationally-active artists and curators, as well as dynamic display formats, are currently characteristics of the latest in artistic productions; but what effects do these new exhibition formats produce?
This is the question Platform3 will raise in the second part of its lecture series Contemporary Curatorial Practices throughout the year 2010. This programme has been conceived in cooperation with ifa-galleries Stuttgart and Berlin. Our guests are international curators and artist collectives working in Turkey, France, South Africa and Romania. Their lectures will cover curatorial approaches and present actual exhibition projects with regards to the respective on-site working conditions. Contemporary Curatorial Practices offers Munich -based cultural workers and people interested in the arts to experience curatorial visions firsthand.
Lectures take place at Platform3, Munich: Free admission.
Övül Durmuşoğlu (Turkey)
Can the issue of difference be a more mass-produced item than a Starbucks latte in our times?
Interested in how difference-minded thinking can end up in invisible separations, Övül Durmuşoğlu will open up the background ideas, notions and images of her coming project Another Country at ifa-gallery Stuttgart.
Istanbul based, Durmuşoğlu conducted the EXOCiTi series of talks and (street) performances and coordinated Radikal Art: Face to Face billboard project for Radikal newspaper. She has been awarded the Lorenzo Bonaldi Prize for young curators (2008) for her project Data Recovery. Durmusoglu is currently a guest in Akademie Schloss Solitude and collaborates with IFA Stuttgart for the exhibition Another Country.
